Testo della canzone Fugazi di Fish
Vodka intimate, an affair with isolation in a Blackheath cell
Extinguishing the fires in my private hell

This is Brixton chess

A knight for embankments folds his newspaper castle
A creature of habit, begs the boatman’s coin
He’ll fade with old soldiers in the grease-stained roll-call
Linger with the
